China to Set Up River–Sea Intermodal for Taiwan Trade

June 25, 2013

An intermodal shipping line connecting the Yangtze River city of Luzhou in Sichuan province and Wuhan in Hubei province, thence on to Taiwan will be launched by the end of this year, reports Xinhua.

With the new service, Sichuan products, such as auto parts, mechanical or electronic products, will be shipped to Wuhan on smaller vessels and then be loaded onto larger near-sea ships for Taiwan, moving goods nearly four times faster door to door.

Luzhou port, being the only river port in the region to offer sea-rail intermodal service, is an important port for trade cargo in the mid-west region. Last year, it handled 135,200 TEU, taking up 84 per cent of Sichuan's total.
